For Immediate Release

The Chebeague child care program, affectionately known as "Kids' Place”, has been a grand success attracting as many as 30 children ages 4 months to 12 years.   The program has been a vital support to young, working parents and has the potential to attract families with young children to the Island. It also will become a feeder to the Island School.   Currently, Kids’ Place depends upon borrowed space, either from the Rec Center or the Island School.  Kids’ Place urgently needs its own space, to be located in a separate building near to the School and the Rec.  Planning has been going on since June.  The Steering Committee members are Kelley Rich, Vicki Todd, Paige Boisvert, Leila Bisharat and Dave Hinchman.  Fund Raising chair is Eldon Mayer and Building Committee chair is Bob Earnest.

The new Kids' Place will be designed to meet our specific needs as well as meet all the code requirements for a day care facility.  There will be appropriate space for activities, play areas, child-friendly bathrooms, storage and a separate, quiet napping room for infants and toddlers.

A capital campaign is being planned, and will swing into action soon.
